Above is an article about the PSHS Wildcat Debate Team winning the International Public Policy Forum Debate sponsored by the Brewer Foundation at NYU in New York City! This is one of the most incredible accomplishments for our debate program. We’ve had two teams place in the final 8 in three years and a first time win! Please congratulate Cheryl Potts on her team's success. The competition began with over 200 schools. Then eight were invited to NYC this past weekend for the quarter- and semi-finals and final round!

Congrats!

Women's Soccer continues its playoff run tomorrow night in a regional quarter-final game.

They play at Colony High School just off 121 in Lewisville against FM Marcus, 7 p.m. Congratulations to coaches Mary Clarke and Heather Morse and the girls!

Happy Birthday! Here's the Whole Month!
